Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?

by Brian Adams

tabbed by Chris Marks

Okay, this is a two guitar song for the most part.
Guitar 1 is nylon string acoustic, and guitar 2 is simply acoustic
Both guitars are standard tuning, but guitar 5 is CAPO 5
12/8 time
This is a long song, there's no way around it.  It was a pain in the ass to tab,
but here it is
Words are lined up as close as I could get them, full lyrics at the bottom

chords:  (relative to CAPO 5)

         Gsus  x00233
         G     x00232
